emotion - feeling - sensational - sensation novel (literary genre)


A sensation is an experience by the senses. More generally thoughts and emotions could also be called sensations. In particular it is something very special. The term can also have a negative connotation, as something shallow, experienced by people without respect, empathy and interest in background. --http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensation

The great object of life is sensation --Byron

“The great object of life is Sensation – to feel that we exist – even though in pain – it is this “craving void” which drives us to Gaming – to Battle – to Travel – to intemperate but keenly felt pursuits of every imaginable description whose principle attraction is the agitation inseparable from their accomplishment.” --Byron

compare Arthur Rimbaud, who wanted "To arrive at the unknown through the disordering of all the senses, that's the point" ("Les lettres du Voyant" - "The Letters of the Seer").
